    Actually, I have 549,000 if you count the views from all of the articles I deleted over the past few years.  Some of you may remember that I took a terrible hit from Google the Summer of 2014, so these numbers show just how hard I've worked to recoup.  These are only from my Timetraveler2 site.  The other site is too new for including numbers.

      I am just 20,000 shy of hitting that mark. I never ever imagined I'd get so many views within an year.

        You're getting them because you are writing about very popular entertainment venues, which younger people just love to read about.

        I would be careful, though, about the photos.  I don't believe you have permission to use many of them, which makes them illegal.  If you get caught, it's going to cost you a great deal of money.  Movie studios pay a lot of money to artists to develop posters, DVD covers, etc. and will not take kindly to people simply using them for their own purposes without permission.

          What should I do, then? I never really gave it any thought. Photos and videos play a huge role in getting hubs ranked well on Search Engines (I think). Are there any good alternatives?

            Of course there are.  Many of us use them, but you have to be creative and be willing to spend some time on them.

            First, I would contact the creator of the work and ask his permission to use it.  If he says no or wants payment, you will need to find another way.

            Sometimes Wikimedia Commons has appropriate stuff, but other times you will have to use public domain photos that you edit to suit your needs that are free and legal.

            Sometimes you can't get the exact photo you want, so you have to improvise.  For example, I did a movie review of "A Walk in the Woods" awhile back, but could not use any of the pro photos.  So, instead, I used a photo of some woods and later added photos I found of the two stars on Wikimedia Commons.

            Doing these things will no doubt lower your views, but at least your work will be legal and you won't have to worry about getting sued.  Using the work of professionals without permission is stealing, pure and simple.  You wouldn't like it if someone stole your articles would you?  Same concept.

              Thanks. I'm getting on it.

                That's a smart move on your part.  Using illegal photos really damages your reputation with other writers and, in the long run, may earn you some money but may cost you a whole lot more if things go sideways.

                Good luck.

      Thank you everybody for your kind words.  We all know how hard it's been, but we just have to keep plugging away at it.

      I have learned so much about online writing since coming here that I can hardly believe it.  I have always considered it the same as having a free education, and I hope to be able to continue learning and growing.

      I'll be 73 next month, and the stimulation I get here from all of you guys as well as from the writing challenges help to keep me young.

      It definitely is for the most part.  A few of the posts are lagging, but most are in double and triple digits every day, which for me is huge!

        I will try a few new articles myself, at some point, if HP sets out a clear route to publication.

        It takes me a couple of days to write anything worthwhile. I cannot spend that kind of time unless I have confidence in their vetting/publication processes.
